Hi,A nation that is held hostage by a minority, cant be taken seriously anymore. On the technical side, the Blk62 is still more advanced than the JF-17 Blk3.
They saw the JF-17, and they saw the lack of vision as well. There was NO OBOGS, or a twin seater, for one, an issue which was only resolved recently.
I did not say to get the JF17---. What I meant was to get involved in the engineering side of the program---on the "how to build" side.
Would have been ideal if at least two engineers were involved and a token gratuity invested into the program. A perfect scenario of learning from 3.5 gen and going thru 4 gen to 4.5 gen---a great opportunity missed---.
